It wasn't all that long ago that an A-list of professional triathletes and Rock n' Roll legends got together to record a song to help raise money for the Blazeman Foundation for ALS in honor of its founder: Jon Blais...as you may recall from THIS story.
That musical spark seems to have started a small Ironman musical fire with the new video below.
David Shultz and his Ironband are in the process of forming a musical and charitable collaboration with former lead singer Mark Mason, of Ampage and now of Iron Blazeman song fame, to help raise more money for the Blazeman Foundation.
David sent his song (see video below) to Mark and according to Ironband's web site:
"Nevertheless, Mark liked the song that we sent out last week as our holiday video card to our friends and fans and just this week Mark released the song, "Please, Please Santa" on the Blazeman Record Label. Our song, as well as Mark's "Ironman Blazeman" song, are now on sale on iTunes and Amazon - 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these songs will go directly to the Blazeman Foundation! And stay tuned; there is talk of a compilation album involving numerous musicians and athletes as well as rumors of a benefit concert in Kona one of these days. Now that's something I'd pack the guitar, bike, and Chamois Butt'r to be a part of!"
So ramp up your holiday playlist, check out our holiday video if you haven't done so already, read up on the Blazeman Foundation, and then visit iTunes to buy the songs and help support the fight against ALS (songs should be available through additional digital music retailers soon)."
We love both the song and video, and of course we hope that you do as well...perhaps even enough to add it to your Holiday iTunes wish list.
